Woven border 1935.32.0174
The motif is a zig-zag pattern variation with an extra V accompanying the main V-shape all along. Small “barbs” stick out of all the lines.
MATERIALS AND TECHNIQUE
Warp: camelid fibre in red, yellow, dark green, dark blue. Weft: camelid fibre in red. Technique: this is a complete textile with selvages on all 4 sides. The red yarn, in plain weave, forms the ground. The 2 other shades of yarn were used for the pick-up as required for the pattern design. Running down one long side is a fringe in the same shades as in the weave. A few bits of a fine plain weave in camelid fibre (probably) were attached to one short side. Linear style.
